The location of the hotel was brilliant, a couple of minutes walk from the tube station and really easy to find. The staff were helpful and friendly and check in was really easy. It was a bit of a maze to find our room but we found it okay with directions from the receptionist. Everything was clean and tidy and the beds were really comfortable, the only problem we had was the room smelt slightly damp. Breakfast was a basic continental but still nice enough. I would stay here again, it was quite good value for money
Clean, decent size room. Staff very friendly and helpful wouldnt definitely return... reasonably priced!

I was there to run a training session with some of the staff, so I wasn't able to see most of the hotel. The staff were smart, welcoming and very professional. The meeting room was very well equipped and perfect for the required needs of the group. Next time I'll make sure I have time to have some food as it looked great.
Staff were fabulous. Great location. Breakfast was really lovely. Had a few problems with bathroom but overall a pleasant stay. Oh and cookies are out of this world 😁

It was a pleasure to stay in this hotel. The service was great and their executive suite stayed open all night for the jetlaggers. Rooms and lobbies were spacious and location of Angel-Islington area made it very easy to travel in all directions. There is a trade show/convention center space right beside this hotel making it a convenient place for foreign travelers who are coming for an event there. I had not gone for any event and was on thanksgiving break to meet my daughter but the anticipation that I saw there for 2 days to a ‘Hotel Design Event’ was enough for me to barge in when the exhibition opened at 10:00am of the day I was leaving at noon. The gatekeeper didn’t let me in but when did I get discouraged by gatekeepers? I gave it a last shot of rushing back into the hotel and filling the online form with my ‘foreign architect’ credentials. Hilton was nice enough to direct me to their ever ready document printer! Phew! I got to rush through a really nice event. Thanks Hilton Angel-Islington
Beautiful room! Very spacious and a lovely large bathroom! Staff were very friendly although the WiFi procedure was explained incorrectly so couldn't be accessed during the stay. This was corrected for us when we left so at least we will know for next time!

Went to one of the monthly music sessions that the Harrison hosts, and it was interesting. The event was held in the basement venue, tickets were £8 which for the quality of the music and the musicians that played was pretty stunning as there isn't a bad seat in the house for this. I don't think the seating was more than two tables/four seats deep, so it was like being right up there with whomever was playing, and it didn't make much difference if the sound system had been working or not, Food and drink were available from the regular bar above, so quite literally whatever was available at the regular bar/restaurant above was also available in the basement as well. The food and drink at the Harrison is generally pretty good, but like a lot of other large establishments that are spread out over a big and quirky areas, it's a challenge for staff to serve it in a timely manner depending on the crowd. And it also depends on what staff is working at any particular time as can be seen in some of the reviews that said they had poor service, cold food etc. So it's somewhat the luck of the draw, but the establishment is capable of great food and good service. If you are attending a venue in the basement, it is not handicap accessible but there are bathrooms available here as well as elsewhere in the pub. All in all it's a pretty good venue, and big cudos to the folks at Harrisons for supporting great local music and musicians. They deserve all the support you can give them.
I am so happy we found this place. My husband and I stayed for a week-long trip to London and we could not be more pleased with the location, atmosphere, food, and hospitality of the Harrison. This place is a dream for vegetarians. We were served a full vegetarian breakfast in our room at promptly the time we asked. Twice we ordered dinner meals, once on their Sunday roast menu and once on their regular menu. Not one bit disappointed! The Harrison is a gem!!

Really nice venue to have a private event! I hosted my work Christmas party here and a friend of mine has a had a couple of parties here also. They make it all really easy. Can get a private room, bar and all the equipment for a dj. Also a roof top terrace great even in the winter time
Really lovely pub with nice food and a cozy ambience. Went on a Friday evening and was pleasantly surprised that they never got too crowded. Friendly staff. Apparently there are also function rooms upstairs, so could be a good option for events.

Old reliable in the heart of Shoreditch. Shortish menu which always has a burger and fish & chips plus always a few other tasty options. Staff are very nice and there's a good selection of craft beers and wines. Good place for an informal sit down lunch.
Recently went for a Sunday roast. Service was ultra friendly and helpful and roast was very decent. Not mind blowing but worthy of a visit
